to a new all-time low. libor or the london interbank offered rate is a key interest rate used all over the world, and it can affect major investments, derivatives, and/or mortgages. here is how it is set -- a pool of banks based in london tell the british bankers' association how much they paid to borrow money from other banks for certain periods of time, such as overnight or for three months. the bba collets the submissions, strips at the highest and lowest numbers and reaches an average figure for that day which is published. the scandal developed when it emerged that some banks tried to move the rate up or down to make a profit. traders would call up colleagues to submit their rates to the bba and urge them to submit an inaccurate made on behalf of the bank in order to skew the average figure in the preferred direction. if you shake 0.1% of the interest rate on a 1 billion pound bond, it could be worth 1 million pounds to someone. that is what was unearthed by british and american regulators last summer. initially at barclays but subsequently at swiss bank ubs, and now the tax payer

that in london. it helped to define not only her role, but in a larger sense, the access the americans were to have with their president. >> that is the only model the washingtons and the rest of the founding government had, the very european monarchies they taught to distance themselves. where do the washington strother example from? >> people see washington always has a strong, marble leader appeare. he was more than a statute. he liked to talk to his associates. he was criticized as a general because he liked to talk to his staff before making a decision. in government, he thought all the best minds in the country would get together and make the right decision. and we were the first modern republic. it is hard for us to understand there was nobody like us. whatever they did mattered. it was important. >> let's take a snapshot. this was from the first census ever done. the census maker was thomas jefferson. here are some of the facts they gathered about the noon -- the united states. the 13 states had a population of just under 4 million. 750 of those were black. only 9% were free. the pe

that he talked about on july 26 in london last year, which is the outright monetary transactions where the ecb would buy bonds from the country's in trouble along with the european stability mechanism under certain conditions. in other words, certain conditionality. no, the ecb is not going to put up that conditionality. they have enough as the central bank and no as a supervisor for the banks. and so it will probably be the international monetary fund, but they have not really agreed what kind of conditionality they're going to put up into is going to do it. the lead candidate for this should be spain, but the prime minister of spain told me several months ago, he would only go in to this program f there was no additional conditionality other than what he was taken because he thought he was taking enough in spain. second of all, if the ecb could prove to him that by taking his son that the spreads for the cost of issuing bonds would go down significantly. as you see, nothing has been done there, but what psychologically is of the markets and other this program is there. there really h
. and his speech in london was definitely a discontinuity point. i think he is what -- he impersonates the kind of leadership that we need in europe, someone that is, i would say, multicultural and that has a very clear perception of the global reality. while most of politicians in europe are purely domestic and, therefore, do not fully appreciate that we are competing in a global world. however, mario draghi sits in frankfurt and we need to implement reforms here and italians have to take charge of that, for that. and it's very interesting because you're referring to margaret thatcher in the uk and schroeder in germany. in continental europe, perhaps it is easier for center left coalitions to push forward with structural reforms because they can get the buyin of a larger segment of the population. >> do you think by doing what mario draghi has done he's actually given italy the stability no matter what happens at the election in order to pass through these reforms? he controls the market, in a sense? >> well, that is a very important form of insurance. the results are another one that

around the corner from us here in london. thank you for coming by. >> pleasure. >> do you agree with what the white house is saying and what a lot of these ceos seem to be saying which is that the country is suffering a lack of competitiveness because of the lack of immigration policy? is this the next issue on the agenda? >> i think it's one of the issues. look at how they acted after 2008. i mean, the recession technically in the u.s. was smaller than it was in the eurozone. but the measures that were taken in the u.s. at that point in time in 2008 and 2009 were a lot more stringent than they were in the eurozone. if you look at the job cuts at that point in time, if you look at insolvencies, i think it's a lot more stringent than it happened here. but the flip side of the coin is the way it worked itself out of the recession i think is more impressive than what we're seeing here. wouldn't you say that has more to do with avoiding a sovereign debt crisis by virtue of not being a haphazard monetary union? >> that's part of it. but also, i think the way the u.s. manage itself out of the c

as an unwelcome surprise in london, especially for the finance minister who says the downgrade has made him more determined to cut the public debt. >> moody's lowered the rating by one notch. it is a blow to the government. some analysts say the austerity policies are hurting the economy at a time when it needs stimulus to generate growth. the finance minister sees things otherwise. >> this is a reminder of the debt problems britain faces and the clearest warning to those who think we can run away from dealing with those problems. >> britain has struggled to reduce its debt, a problem made worse by slow economic growth in recent years. bayless during the financial crisis have added to the problem. the slowlamed recovery and weak global economic activity and said low growth is likely to hamper government efforts to reduce debt. osborn said the government will stick by its policies. if we weaken our resolve, it would make the difficult situation much worse. we are clear that we should redouble our resolve. >> the downgrade may drive up borrowing costs which might further dampen britain's recovery.
